Talk is cheap! It’s easy to say we have faith in Jesus without putting that faith into action. The book of James is a ‘how to’ manual sharing wisdom to help us live life the way Jesus is calling us to. Let’s put our faith to work!

Truth Encounters

Jesus said 'you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free'. What truths did Jesus teach, how did it affect other person in that encounter? How should they affect us?

Building Tomorrow's Church Today

In this series we look at some of the values of Church and some of the practices that are more flexible as we consider the challenges of the future.

Living As Witnesses

Living As Witnesses

The book of Acts documents the first Pentecost and the gift of the Spirit to enable the disciples to be witnesses (Acts 1:8). Our series this May will look at what it means to be a Witness in the power of the Holy Spirit (alliterating around the letter W quite strongly!).

Good Grief

Good Grief

Is there such a thing as good grief? What does the Bible have to say about the inevitable losses in life? What do we do with our longings? What does the biblical idea of lament have to say to us today?

Exploring Easter

The events of Easter are well known, but they raise some pretty big questions. We'll be exploring some of those questions as we prepare for Easter.

A Series in Colossians

6So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 2

First Things First

Getting our priorities straight in the New Year

Based on Matthew 6

The start of the year is a good time to step back and assess how we’re investing our energy, time and money. What does the bible have to say about each of these things? And is what we say is important to us actually reflected in the reality of our day to day lives?

In the lead up to Christmas, we look together at how Jesus fulfils the Old Testament story.

Testament

TESTAMENT.jpg

For many people the Old Testament is literally a closed book. Yet for Jesus himself, and the early Church, it was their scripture. Jesus quotes the Old Testament often, as do Paul and the other New testament writers. Yet for may of us today there seems to be a disconnect between ‘the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ’ and the requirements of God as he appears in the Old Testament. How should we read this book?

God habits

The letter of John is a letter written by an elder statesman in the Church, (probably the apostle John) encouraging his flock in the face of many difficulties to hold on to things of first importance. The things John teaches have become his habit and practice through long usage. They are habits and disciplines that are transformational if we can acquire them. They form a secret history with practical outworkings.

How to respond in times of crisis?

The world is a turbulent place. International tensions, inequalities globally and at home, lack of trust in government and institutions all generate fear and anxiety. The prophet Jeremiah lived through a time of immense crisis in the nation of Judah. His prophetic messages both gave strong challenges but also guidance and comfort to the people of his day. What can we learn from him about being a prophetic people to our nation today? Over the month four prophetic pictures give us insight into God’s word being delivered through someone very human.

Stories of the Kingdom

There’s a Kingdom beyond the land we can see, that is alive and active in the world today. A powerful Kingdom full of great riches where all are invited in.

Join us for our series, Stories of the Kingdom, and embark on an adventure to search for this Kingdom.

Whose is it anyway?

The Bible has a lot to say about good stewardship. Why is getting to grips with this topic fundamental to discipleship and a life of faith? What does God have to say about ownership, responsibility, accountability and reward?

CONFIDENCE - JUNE TO JULY 2017

CONFIDENCE - JUNE TO JULY 2017

How can we have confidence in a fragile world? Who should we place our confidence in?

Fruitfulness on the frontline

Everyone has a frontline, a place where the nature of the Kingdom of God and our citizenship of that Kingdom is challenged and critiqued by other powers or values. Usually that place is not the Church but our neighbourhood, place of work, even our home or our leisure activity. Frontline is by default a place of witness, ministry and challenge. How do we identify what our frontline is? What has the gospel to say about how we work out our earthly citizenship? How do the places where we go away from our Christian fellowship challenge our faith or call out good things from us?
